Ean Parsons, CEO of the Parsons Containers Group, said: “We have opened the new U Hold The Key South Shields site at a time when there is a continued surge in demand for container self-storage. We identified the site as a key strategic location to serve customers across South Tyneside some time ago and I am delighted that it is now open.

"Wilson Street is ideally placed for trades people needing a secure storage container for stock and equipment, and this need is reflected in the advance bookings that we took ahead of opening. We look forward to replicating the success of our other U Hold The Key self-storage sites at our new home in South Tyneside.”
